    You are invited to attend the Displaced Homemaker Program 40th Anniversary Reception on Tuesday, March 12, 2024, from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. in Building R, Room 1 (R-001) on the Northwest Campus of Santa Fe College. Graduates of the program representing each decade will share their story of the impact the program has made in their lives.

    JoAnn Wilkes, Director of the Displaced Homemaker Program, said, “We are so proud of our graduates and their accomplishments. We hope our graduates and community supporters will come celebrate with us.”

    The Displaced Homemaker program (DHP) offers educational assistance and additional support to empower people in our community who are transitioning into employment after working primarily in the home. DHP offers free classes and workshops throughout the year. Specialized services include boosting self-esteem, improving communications skills, assertiveness training, resume assistance, job searching techniques, and interview practice.

    Since 1984, DHP has assisted over 4,000 people in our community, resulting in increased wages and buying power, and a reduced need for social services. Please join us in recognizing the impact this program has made at Santa Fe College.

    NETWORKING - Come Elevate Yourself


    THE 30 SECOND ELEVATOR PITCH

    The goal is to pique interest and get members to want to learn more, not give them a complete overview of everything you do. 


    If you don't have your own business, focus on how could GAWN members help you. Would you like to: have coffee with others in _____; establish a mentor/mentee relationship with someone in _____; get support for a ____ transition; etc.

    OUTLINE

    Who you are.

    What you do / your business.

    What's unique.

    What' your ask / call-to-action.

    Optional: slogan / tagline / something memorable

    TIPS

    SHORT! 30 seconds / target 75 words.

    Interesting. (yours is one of 50+ pitches)

    Personalized for GAWN members.

    Be confident & positive.

    PREPARATION

    Practice & refine & practice...

    Time yourself. (we will cut you off at 30 sec.)

    Speak slowly, enunciate clearly.

    Vary your tone. Smile!

    REMEMBER - Keep It Simple and Concise, you only have 30 seconds!
